  • Pool and hot tub
  • Fitness facility
  • Pet friendly
  • On-site salon and barber
  • Movie theater
  • Library

In Raleigh, independent living communities are sometimes referred to as retirement communities. Call us today to help you find the community that's perfect for all of your needs.

Activities for Seniors in Raleigh

You will see that Raleigh is a hub for senior attractions and events. Here are a few of the things you will enjoy in the Wake County city.


Spend the day in one of several spacious, pristine parks in the Raleigh area. Oakwood Park is a small, community park on 12 acres of land, it has a small pavilion and a dog park. The Fred Fletcher Park spans 21 acres that feature beautiful garden, walking paths, and two tennis courts. You will find plenty of nature in the park, such as dragonflies, butterflies, ducks, frogs, and a variety of bird species. Lake Johnson Park is a great getaway, with a 150-acre lake surrounded by 3.5 miles of paved Greenway trails and another 1.9 miles of unpaved trails to explore.


Art lovers will enjoy seeing the different exhibits that grace the walls of the Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh. The museum has no permanent collections. Instead, it features an array of collaborations with the College of Design at the North Carolina State University. Another cultural destination is the North Carolina Museum of History, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. Learn the fascinating history of the state with the 20,000 square-foot exhibit, "The Story of North Carolina."


The area is home to a few professional and semi-professional sports teams. Catch a National Hockey League Hockey game or a North Carolina State Wolfpack men's basketball game at PNC Arena.
